Russia: Only Italy Can Adopt Our Children Because They Ban Gay Marriage

"It turns out that Italy is currently the only country whose citizens are able to adopt Russian children because, first of all, this country refused to recognise same-sex marriage, which, for its part, does not require Russia to change the existing agreement, and, secondly, (the Italians) abide by the terms of this treaty. That is all. It is not our fault. (Other countries) should work harder if you want international adoption to continue."- Pavel Astakhov, Russian Children's Rights Commissioner, speaking yesterday to Interfax.  Russia Today reports on the story with this quote from Astakhov: "Such cases of pedophilia, violence and brutality as we have in America, we have nothing like that anywhere else."
